Raven Books are offering five reading groups the chance to read the critically acclaimed gothic chiller THE SILENT COMPANIONS by Laura Purcell. In return we would like you to review for us.
SOME DOORS ARE LOCKED FOR A REASON…
Newly married, newly widowed Elsie is sent to see out her pregnancy at her late husband’s crumbling country estate, The Bridge. With her new servants resentful and the local villagers actively hostile, Elsie only has her husband’s awkward cousin for company. Or so she thinks. For inside her new home lies a locked room, and beyond that door lies a two-hundred-year-old diary and a deeply unsettling painted wooden figure – a Silent Companion – that bears a striking resemblance to Elsie herself…
